Combo box popup [message #444191] Fri, 08 October 2004 12:50 Go to next message

I'm new to SWT and after a little studying, I came to Combo widget.
After a little playing with it, I ended up searching from the API how I
could implement this:

I have Combo, which style is DROP_DOWN, it contains one item: "select
me". When the user writes "s", it should pop up the drop down and focus
automatically to the item from select box that best matches to user's
input. In this case, it should focus on "select me".

I'm pretty sure that I can do this with listeners, but if there's
already something that I didn't note, which with I can do this, I would
use that instead of writing my own listener. So, is there?

Hi Mikko,

There is no way provided of doing this automatically. With listeners you
can almost get the behaviour that you describe, but you will not be able to
programatically drop down the combo, you will only be able to fill in the
text field appropriately.
